The university is one of the most international universities in Germany with an average of 30% of foreign students.
The rich Harz ore deposits were the breeding ground for the region's economic importance as the center of raw material extraction and formed the basis for the establishment of the university. The founding year is 1775. In that year, Berghauptmann von Reden in Clausthal initiated a one-year training course for miners and smelterers, which was written in the general superintendent Friderici about "New school facilities or plans for the non-profit establishment of large and small schools" (Clausthal: Wendeborn 1775) had a programmatic basis. The teaching course followed on from previous teaching approaches of the Clausthal Lyceum, which went back to Henning Calvör . These courses solidified in 1811 to the "Mountain School for the Harz Division" on the basis of the "Regulations on the teaching of the mining and metallurgical auxiliary sciences" of the (Napoleonic) Westphalian for the Bergeleven in the Harz Division Minister of Finance, Trade and Industry, Count Hans von Bülow , from November 21, 1810.
The management was taken over by the then Vice- Bergschreiber and later planner of the Ernst-August-Stollen , Johann Christian Zimmermann . After an interlude as a mountain and forest school (1821–1844), which ended with the break-off of the forest school and the financial and personnel crisis of the mountain school, King George V of Hanover raised the mountain school to a mining academy on December 27, 1864 . Since 1866, the year of the annexation of Hanover, under Prussian regiment, the Bergakademie remained connected as an institution of the Clausthal mining administration, initially with a mountain school under the common roof of the "United Bergakademie und Bergschule".
The relevant legal basis was the "Statute for the United Mining Academy and Mining School", which the Prussian Minister for Trade, Industry and Public Works issued on March 20, 1869 and whose revised version was adopted by Mining Captain Ernst Hermann Ottiliae on December 12, 1873. Since this connection was associated with disadvantages for both sister institutions, the Bergschule separated from the Bergakademie on April 1, 1906.
The Bergakademie, for its part, broke away from the Oberbergamt with the "Statutes of the Royal Mining Academy in Clausthal of April 6, 1908" and achieved direct subordination to the Prussian Minister for Trade and Industry; the miner's captain was, however, appointed by the statutes to be a curator as the representative of the minister on site.
The Bergakademie soon received a habilitation regulation, and on January 29, 1912, the King granted the two Prussian Bergakademien zu Berlin and Clausthal the right to obtain the academic degree of a diploma on the basis of the examinations that had already taken place. To hire engineers; Furthermore, from this point on, engineers graduated in Clausthal could acquire the title of doctoral engineer with the help of Clausthal professors at the Technical University in Berlin. With the statutes of May 14, 1919, the previous directorate constitution was replaced by a rectorate constitution - as was common at the university at the time - and in autumn 1920 the university was granted the right to award doctorates independently; These two acts crowned the development of the mining academy into a technical special college for mining and metallurgy. The year 1934 brought the subordination to the Prussian Ministry of Education, the year 1935 the division into two faculties, measures that also existed under changed political circumstances.
With the development after the capitulation in 1945, the office of curator was lost in Clausthal, unlike, for example, in Göttingen, which had a curator for a long time. On February 19, 1952, the council passed a “Provisional Constitution of the Bergakademie”, for which the Minister of Education did not issue approval despite a corresponding application, but also did not issue a constitution. In this situation the council decided on February 19th / 13th May 1952 to apply the new draft constitution as rules of procedure until the minister of education issued a constitution. The ministry tacitly tolerated this, as well as the changes to the “Provisional Constitution” in the following years, so that the Council's declaration of application referred to the university constitutional basis until 1968. The "Provisional Constitution" relocated key management functions to the Senate, in which the Rector was involved as the representative of the university; the interplay between the collegial and monocratic elements justifies speaking of a Senate constitution.
In the 1960s, the range of subjects was expanded after the traditional areas of mining, metallurgy and mine cutting had already been supplemented by the relevant disciplines of geology, geophysics and metallurgy beyond general academic subjects such as law and economics, and a stormy professional development began.
On May 31, 1963, the Lower Saxony minister of education approved the mining academy adding the explanatory note “Technical University” to its name “Bergakademie Clausthal”; on November 1, 1966, the state ministry renamed the mining academy to “Clausthal University of Technology” and on March 28, 1968 to “Clausthal University of Technology”, in one step with the renaming of the Technical Universities of Braunschweig and Hanover to Technical Universities. On the same day, March 28, the State Ministry, in the tradition of Prussian law - for the last time based on the organizational powers of the state government - issued provisional university constitutions for the three technical universities mentioned. The “Provisional Constitution of the Technical University of Clausthal” brought the participation of the academic staff and students in the faculty, senate and council as well as the chancellor as a new body. Although the validity of the new constitution was expressly limited - initially until May 31, 1970 - as a result of the disputes over the preliminary law of October 26, 1971 and the development under federal law (university framework law of January 26, 1976), it was only replaced by the constitution of January 17, 1976. February 1983 (Council decision) / September 28, 1984 (announcement by the Minister for Science and Art) on the basis of the Lower Saxony University Act of June 1, 1978.
From January 1, 2009 until the Lower Saxony Technical University (NTH) was dissolved on December 31, 2014, Clausthal University of Technology was a member of the university alliance, along with the Braunschweig University of Technology and the University of Hanover. The purpose of this corporation under public law was to make the universities "internationally competitive through cooperation and complementary focus areas;" in particular, "Lower Saxony should become more efficient in the competition for supra-regional and European research funding, for example through joint graduate colleges, graduate schools, special research areas and research centers, etc. , also with the involvement of non-university research institutions ”. With its predecessor, the “Consortium Technicum”, the three universities had already undertaken to compensate for the previous planning deficiencies in the state by trying to coordinate their university plans.
The alliance of the three technical universities of Lower Saxony in the NTH was operationally terminated at the end of 2014. The state government announced this at a press conference on October 14, 2014, after the Lower Saxony Scientific Commission presented its report on the assessment of the NTH. The then Science Minister Heinen-Kljajic (Greens) felt confirmed in her assessment that the structures of the NTH had been set up and were not effective. Since then, Clausthal University of Technology has had its own, i. H. special future planning was carried out, which manifests itself in the development of the “master plan of the TU Clausthal”.
With 78 professors, around 400 academic staff and around 4,000 students, it is one of the smallest universities in Germany. It is considered to be extremely practice-oriented, which is underpinned by a relatively high amount of third-party funding / professorship and reproducibly good places in university rankings. Due to the cooperation with foreign universities (32 international partnerships) and future-oriented courses such as management of radioactive and chemotoxic waste , 40% of the students come from abroad.
Since it was founded, the university has been accompanied by milestones in technical progress. Examples are sophisticated systems for the use of water power for the operation of mining and processing machines, the art of driving to transport people, the field linkage as a drive system over long distances, the wire rope as well as precise mining instruments , which are considered Clausthal's inventions. Famous scientists such as Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz , Arnold Sommerfeld or Goethe's friend Friedrich Wilhelm Heinrich von Trebra are connected to Clausthal's history.
New directions of research
After teaching and research in Clausthal had concentrated for a long time on mining, metallurgy and geosciences , the range of courses was significantly expanded in the 1960s. Diploma courses from chemistry and physics to mathematics and materials science to mechanical engineering and process engineering initiated the change that led to the renaming in 1968 to "Clausthal University of Technology".
This bridging between tradition and innovation was followed by further new, trend-setting courses: Computer science, industrial mathematics and chemical engineering were introduced over the last 20 years, followed by environmental protection technology, energy system technology, geotechnical engineering, physics / physical technologies, plastics technology and a significant reinforcement of the business management component with the courses Industrial engineering, business mathematics and business informatics as well as a major in business chemistry. As a result of this reorientation, the number of students increased sharply and, even after the slump in engineering over the past few years, the latest development has shown considerable growth.
The new orientation in teaching also led to expanded research activities: in 1986, the interdisciplinary "Environmental Technology Research Association" was launched in Clausthal, from which the business-oriented research institute of the State of Lower Saxony CUTEC emerged. The Arnold Sommerfeld Institute brings together physics and mathematics to research complex physical systems. In the polymer center, chemists, physicists and engineers work on the manufacture and use of new materials.
The research center COPES, funded by the European Community, serves the international exchange of scientists in the fields of machine and process engineering and environmental protection technology. Clausthal is active in a number of special research areas on the development of new materials and forms of energy, on the improvement of process engineering processes through new machines, on oil and gas research or on researching textures. The participation in space projects and especially in the Lower Saxony area the numerous technology prizes from scientists or spin-off companies of the Clausthal University of Technology are also known.
With all the innovative developments, the core area of the Clausthal University of Technology in teaching and research is rooted in its roots: The university's technical focus is on the extraction, refinement, storage, distribution, use and reuse of resources from this earth - be it materials or energy or information. The science-based work in chemistry, physics or geosciences is geared towards this, as is engineering with mechanical engineering, process engineering, mining / geotechnical engineering and materials science, or mathematics and computer science and economics. For some semesters no more students have been accepted for geology and mining; these courses are expiring.
Around 100 university professors and 450 scientific employees as well as 500 employees in technical and administrative services in around 45 institutions are responsible for teaching and research. Up to a third of the total budget is raised through research activities, which means that the academic staff is particularly pronounced. Honorary professors and lecturers from the industry strengthen the teaching with practical offers. The university now has a total of over 1100 employees, including 101 trainees.
On April 1, 2005, a new faculty order for the Clausthal University of Technology came into force in accordance with the Lower Saxony University Act. The new structure of the faculties is intended to make the profile of the TU Clausthal and the interdisciplinary networking clear.

Reputation and placement in the German study landscape
- DIE ZEIT , 2012/2013: Top position in the CHE ranking in the subjects of mechanical engineering , IT / business informatics and industrial engineering
- In the CHE ranking, which appears annually in the weekly newspaper DIE ZEIT , Clausthal University of Technology regularly occupies top positions. The ranking is considered to be the most comprehensive and detailed ranking of German-speaking universities, technical colleges and vocational academies.
- WirtschaftsWoche , 2009: 5th place among the universities with the most DAX board members
- In 2009, the business magazine WirtschaftsWoche compared “the universities of the Dax bosses” in a ranking. It was examined which universities have currently produced the most Dax board members. Clausthal University of Technology was in 5th place, with the highest number of board members among the universities listed in relation to the size of the university.
- Young career , 2008: 8th place in industrial engineering and 11th place in mechanical engineering
- According to its own information , more than 51,000 students and graduates as well as 1,000 HR managers from large companies were surveyed in the university ranking by Junge Karriere, the job and career magazine of the Handelsblatt .
- ALTOP Verlag, 2008: Top position in industrial engineering
- As part of a survey among German HR managers for the “Sustainable Management” forum, Clausthal University of Technology was recognized as a “ first-rate alma mater ” and as a “cadre forge”, particularly in the field of industrial engineering.
In the last 10 years, the proportion of international students at the TUC was very high at 25% to 38% in a nationwide comparison.
The most strongly represented nation is the People's Republic of China with a share of approx. 12% to 20% of the total of all students. The great popularity of the Clausthal University of Technology among Chinese students is due to the fact that the university is one of the “ABC universities” in China . This includes RWTH Aachen University , TU Berlin and TU Clausthal, which are regarded in China as the three leading German universities for engineering sciences .
Clausthal's reputation in China was strengthened after the university became known as the doctoral site for top Chinese politician Wan Gang . As Minister of Science and Technology, he has been the highest authority for research and technological progress in the People's Republic since 2007 .
Networking industry and university
As one of the smaller German universities, the TU Clausthal is one of the universities with the relatively highest number of alumni in the management levels of major international corporations. Most recently, these included RWE , ThyssenKrupp , K + S , HeidelbergCement , Aurubis , ENRC and Jungheinrich .
In keeping with its tradition as a former mining academy , Clausthal is one of three universities in Germany that offer courses in the field of raw material extraction. In this context, there are strong research and training collaborations with some of the world's largest companies in the extractive industry . For example, oil and energy companies such as ExxonMobil , RWE and Baker Hughes operate dual funding programs at the TUC in order to recruit graduates for their own company before they graduate. Due to the special research focus and its economic proximity, the Clausthal University of Technology was described by the FAZ as the “most renowned cadre for smelting technology” .
Campus and student life
In the Student Parliament for the financial year 2012/2013 with 25 seats four groups are represented. The university elections in January 2012 won the FREE List with 11 seats in the student parliament, followed by the Ring of Christian Democratic Students (RCDS) with 9 seats. The Chinese Student Initiative (CSI) got 3 seats, the Chinese Student Association (CSV) got 2 seats. The turnout was 17.5 percent.
The elections for the 2014/15 budget year took place on January 21st and 22nd, 2014; The GuStaV list (group of independent students from all connections) had 11 seats, the Free List 7 seats, the RCDS-Clausthal 6 seats and the CSI one seat. The turnout was 16.2 percent.
Although the mountain school had been elevated to a mining academy in December 1864, the mountain school regulations of 1859 still applied, which forbade merging into "corps associations or country teams". The first student associations were a “Cheruskia” in 1856 and a “Corps Rhenania” in 1861, but both had to be given up after a short time. The Corps Hercynia , founded in 1866 under a cover name, was banned again by the then director of the Bergakademie Bergrat Roemer in 1867, when it was declared a Corps . It was only after the Hercynen's submission to the Mining and Forestry Office, the then superior department of the Bergakademie, supported by all professors at the Bergakademie, that there was a rethink. It was feared that even more students would migrate to other universities as a result of the ban, and so on October 27, 1867, the ban on connections with a lot of people was finally lifted . As a result, the Corps Montania was founded in 1868 and the Corps Borussia in 1875. Further foundings were the predecessor of the “Free Burschenschaft Schlägel und Eisen” in 1890, the “Turnerschaft Germania” in 1892 and the “Association of German Students (VDSt)” in 1903.
The Bergakademie remained closed during the First World War . When the number of students increased sharply from 1919 after the end of the war, further connections were established. Most of these had to suspend after a few years when the number of students fell again. In 1935, all student associations were dissolved and combined in the original comradeship of the NS student union , which in 1937 was divided according to the old association structures:
- "Kameradschaft I" consisted of former members of Germania , Rhenania and Glückauf , the meeting point was the Germania house on the "Bremer Höhe".
- "Kameradschaft II" was formed by the former members of Schlägel und Eisen and the VDSt , the meeting point was the house of Schlägel und Eisen on Adolf-Ey-Straße.
- "Kameradschaft III" consisted of the members of the three former corps, the meeting point was the Borussia house on Birckenbachstrasse.
After the end of the Second World War, the comradeships were dissolved, but the formation of connections was initially prohibited. Initially, only the representation of interests vis-à-vis the Bergakademie was permitted, such as B. in the form of the General Student Committee (AStA) and student councils , it was later allowed to form friendship alliances. From these the old connections developed again after 1950.
Several connections from universities in the GDR area switched to Clausthal since 1950, such as the Alte Freiberg fraternity Glückauf zu Clausthal , the “Alte Leobener Burschenschaft Germania”, the “Sängerschaft Rheno Silesia”, the “Landsmannschaft Alemannia Dresden” and the “Akademisch Musikalische” Connection Ascania Halle ”. At the end of 1966 there were 21 connections in Clausthal. Currently (2012) there are around 40 student associations at the TU Clausthal, including 15 student associations.
Symphony orchestra of the TU Clausthal
The orchestra was founded as a chamber orchestra at the TU Clausthal in 1960 and renamed the Symphony Orchestra of the TU Clausthal in 2005 . Participants are students and employees of the TU, but also committed musicians from Clausthal-Zellerfeld and the surrounding area. Every semester , a demanding program is worked out during the lecture period in weekly rehearsals and on a rehearsal weekend, which is performed towards the end of the semester in the auditorium of Clausthal University of Technology and at different locations in the region.
Since 2002 Rainer Klugkist has directed the Symphony Orchestra of the TU Clausthal.
In February 2016, the orchestra brought "Bergmannsrhapsodie" by Steffen Brinkmann premiered. This work was commissioned by the Musikgemeinde Osterode am Harz for the Clausthal University of Technology.
Clausthal University Choir
The approximately forty members - students and employees of the TU, but also citizens from Clausthal and the surrounding area - develop a concert program every semester. There are also appearances in university celebrations. The university choir also works with well-known soloists and regular ensembles such as the Göttingen Baroque Orchestra or the Wernigerode Chamber Philharmonic . Guest appearances at the Chortage Hannover and foreign concert venues such as the Kaiserpfalz Goslar , Sondershausen Castle , Michaelstein Monastery or the cathedral churches of Halberstadt and Bad Gandersheim complement the activities of the choir.
Big Band of the TU Clausthal
In the 2017/18 winter semester, the Big Band was the third ensemble at Clausthal University of Technology. The 20 or so musicians are mainly dedicated to jazz , swing , as well as funk and pop music .
With the new big band, Domenic Eggers, who has received a teaching position at Clausthal University of Technology, is studying classical jazz as well as jazzy pop pieces.
Currently around two thirds of the band members come from the university and one third from the region.

The Clausthal University Library is a central facility of the Clausthal University of Technology and also a publicly accessible library for all citizens, schools, companies and authorities in the region. The focus of the collection is on the areas of natural sciences (excluding biology), mathematics and computer science, technology, in particular metallurgy and materials science, mechanical and process engineering, chemical engineering, electrical engineering, mining and raw materials, industrial engineering and environmental protection technology. But other areas such as the university archive, which manages documents from the university administration and the institutes from the past 200 years, can be found in the Clausthal University Library.
On an area of 2,230 m² there are over 490,000 volumes, over 450 current scientific journals, over 18,000 electronic journals, over 19,000 volumes in the textbook collection, 319 workstations, 38 PCs with catalog and internet access and extensive WLAN access. There are over 100,000 loans per year.
Tuition fees were introduced at TU Clausthal through the Lower Saxony University Optimization Concept (HOK) . Freshmen paid € 500 from the 2006/07 winter semester, all those who were already enrolled from the 2007 summer semester. In addition, all students had to pay a semester fee of € 146. This was made up of the administrative fee (€ 75), the student union fee (€ 59) and the student body fee (€ 12). In total, this resulted in costs of € 646 per semester.
The HOK also changed the rules for long-term students . Those who had used up their study credit (standard study period plus four semesters) had to pay € 500 long-term study fee. However, for example, participation in student self-administration could increase the student credit.
Since the summer semester 2007 there were no longer any separate long-term tuition fees. Instead, the regular tuition fees increase by € 100 to € 300. A student (with a standard study period of nine semesters) had to pay € 600 from the 14th semester, € 700 from the 16th semester and € 800 from the 18th semester, plus the semester fees. Semesters on leave were also included.
In the winter semester 2014/15 the tuition fees in Lower Saxony were abolished.
In March 2007, Clausthal University of Technology was awarded the basic certificate “family-friendly university”. The related target agreements were implemented in five project groups by 2010. In June 2013 the university was successfully re-examined and was thus certified for a further three years. Furthermore, the TU Clausthal has been part of the family charter at the university since May 2014 and has thus committed itself to continue to be family-friendly.
